The cryptocurrency rallied vertically and crashed the $500 resistance against the US dollar after more than 2 years of trading. The price increase came with the rising trends of ETH searchers on Google. It now seems that ETH bulls are no longer in the mood to remain in the lower $500 zone as a bout of price action led the cryptocurrency top of the $500 mark a few minutes ago. This increase marks a 6% for Ethereum’s native token and almost increased by a 200 percent gain year to date.

 “For the merge, I would say less than a year is not realistic. Even if a complete merge implementation fell out of the sky in February, I would recommend we sit on our butts until November or so to convince people that PoS is safe.”

In a recent AMA on Reddit’s official ETH subreddit, Vitalik said that in the next two years the network will churn about 4.7 million coins. He said he was happy about the completion of the coding for the 2.0 phase 0 launch as it has totally de-risked the transition to ETH 2.0.
